WSI, formerly Wackenhut Services, has agreed to pay the United States $650,000 to resolve allegations it billed the government for entertainment expenses, according to information from U.S. Attorney William Nettles.
The alleged violations were for work from 2001-05 at the Department of Energy's Savannah River, S.C., nuclear site. WSI is an owner of Mission Support Alliance, which began providing support services at Hanford in August.
WSI submitted expenses at Savannah River that included a charter boat cruise, a Polynesian drum show and alcohol for its employees, according to a statement from Nettles.
The government alleged that WSI submitted claims that included expressly unallowable claims under the Federal Acquisitions Regulations Act and later certified the claims did not include any expressly unallowable claims.
